Culture, Wellbeing and the Living Standards Framework: A Perspective

This discussion paper is the first step in the process to better incorporate culture into the Living Standards Framework (LSF) and Dashboard, which are anticipated to be released in 2021.

The key questions considered in the newly released paper include:

  • What are the different dimensions of culture that matter for New Zealanders’ wellbeing?
  • What would be the advantages and disadvantages of creating a fifth capital stock under the heading Cultural Capital in the LSF?
  • What set of indicators and statistical measures should there be to monitor the contribution of cultural capital to future wellbeing?
